Welcome, 2018!

Guys, I’ll only be able to say that once!  So, let’s just sit and marvel at that.

Okay, that was enough marveling.  You are all sitting on the edge of your seats because I am releasing the first part of…..LLIL!!  But that isn’t the most exciting thing I’ll be doing.  However, here’s a sneak peek.

If you had been walking down Elm Grove Street in Abbeyton, you might have heard the hoarse voice in number 73.  Old Mrs. Landers was nearly deaf and blind, and wasn’t much help to her spinster daughter in the raising of her granddaughter.  One thing she did help with was making sure Kyrie did her school work.

Yep, it’s going to be great.  First, however, you must endure with me as I introduce….

Yes!  I started a blog with my little sister, Rose!  We are doing a collab blog, and finally started it just in time for the new year!  But, as a result, I won’t be posting on Thursdays anymore.  At least, not after this Thursday. 🙂

Just click that button up there or this link here.  You’ll be transported to a blog where our dolls rule…much to our chagrin *grimaces*.  I think you’ll enjoy it as much as…

Lovely Links in Literature!  Yep, just click that link or look up at my menu up there.  It’s finally out and you can read it!  I actually finished it before Christmas! *gasp*  How many of you are always scrambling because you put things off?  Well, that’s usually me, but not this time!  Folks, go check it out!

And one quick side note.  For you who are bloggers and are participating in LLIL, please tag your post using the tag LLIL. Thanks!

Also, I’m announcing the very first…

Amie Quote of the Year

Yep! So, what you as my followers have to do, is go and find your favorite quotes of me this year.  Once I have them all (which is be next week)  I’ll do a poll.  Or, I could just find quotes I like if no one participates.

Once you have chosen the quote from a blog post/page, copy it, and comment down below with it.  It’s simple…sorta.

Either way, happy New Years and happy reading!

Lovely Links in Literature

Hey!  It’s finally Tuesday.  I know you’ve all been up just wondering who the characters of LLIL are.  No?  You were just patiently waiting?  Oh.  Then never mind.  I’ll just go on with the post whether you were waiting for it or not.IMG_6186

Today I promised to introduce the main characters but first I’m going to clarify a few things.  I know, you have to wait longer.  Actually, you have my permission to go read the characters first if you come back and read this.

Okay, #1 is…The chapter length.  I’m not even really sure about this myself but since you’re only doing one chapter, you should be full of ideas that are about to burst.  I would like each chapter to be at least 1,000 words.  What?  Why are you guys gaping?

#2 is a question of how you are supposed to know it’s your turn.  I’ll give you an email (It just so happens I have all your emails) or message you if you have a blog.  Regardless, you do not have to worry about it.  I’ve got it under my belt.

#3 is how long do you have to write it?  Well, two weeks.  You have two weeks and if it takes you longer you will —-.  If it takes you longer, you can just contact me and I totally understand.

#4.  I’m going to make sure every one knows that there is to be NO romance or fantasy.  This is to be a fun and cute story (fantasy is fun and cute but…) not full of romancey disgustingness.

#5.  You are allowed to introduce other characters.  Guys, this is your story as much as mine.  I’m just the coordinator who gives you ideas.  I want this, when you read it, to be something we are all proud of.  Something we can all say, “This is our story.”  I don’t want you to say, “This is Amie’s story I just happened to help with.”

And that is all!  Oh, wait.  I forgot one.  Wait a moment…

#6.  You are allowed to use Scratch, Word, Pages… the list goes on… if you notify me before you use it.  It’s going to be awesome whatever form you use (or even if you post it on your blog) but I need to know what you are using.  I mean, if you’re a blogger, I’m going to assume you’re using your blog.IMG_6187

And now that is officially all the clarifications.  I’ll place the list so far and the rules at the very bottom of this list.  Now, all who did not skip, I’m giving you a high-five!  I’m proud of y’all.  Anyhow, now to the characters.

Kyrie Noel Brink

Kyrie is a lonely orphan that lives with her old grandmother and prim and proper aunt.  She’s never had any adventures worth recounting (there is that time she was in the middle of a food fight…) but that soon changes.

She enjoys mostly books, shopping, and getting good grades.  She’s good-humored and doesn’t often get ruffled.  Her main fear is displeasing her aunt, who is very strict.  She isn’t one to say she won’t do something and just goes with the flow.

She’s fourteen with blonde long hair, green eyes, and a rather sour look.  She’s just used to sitting still and doing nothing.

Christian Alexander Worth

Christian, or Alec as he’s known, is the oldest of the Worth quartet.   He is the leader of the escapades and hasn’t seemed to grow up.  He lives next door to Kyrie with his family.

Alec enjoys sports but his favorite is track.  He is a born runner.  He’s the one that goes sniffing around for adventure and dashing into it recklessly.

He’s seventeen and considers himself a man. (Much to Jill’s annoyance!) He has red hair,freckles, and blue eyes.

Jill Morgan Worth

Jill is the oldest daughter and probably the most responsible.  She is as much of a leader as her brother, so they often butt heads.  She sometimes worry about the thoughts of her peers, but mostly she’s as eager for adventure as all her siblings.

Jill tends to be on the bossy side, with a bit of caution mixed in.  She enjoys music, photography, and fashion.  She likes her camera so much, that her brother’s have titled it her “BCF”  or otherwise known as best camera forever.

Jill is fifteen with darker hair, light eyes, and freckles.

Edmund Timothy Worth

Ed was named after his mother’s favorite book series. (*sighs in happiness*  Guys, I want to name my kid Edmund!)  Ed is always prepared, carrying around what Alec kindly refers to as his ‘man purse’.  (Two of the articles in the purse are a knife and flashlight.)

Edmund is the witty one of the family; every ready for a quick come back.  He tends to be a bit of a sass king but at heart is brave and full of determination.  He isn’t as athletic as Alec, but he still enjoys outdoor activity.

Ed has dark hair like his older sister and blue eyes.  He’s fourteen, but according to Jill acts younger.

Philadelphia Elise Worth

Phil often wishes she had a nicer name.  NO ONE is named Philadelphia or Elise, but it turns out Philadelphia is where her parents met.  She’s the youngest Worth and often feels neglected or slighted.  She hardly ever finds her voice listened to.

She enjoys animals of any kind.  She has her own bunny and they have a family dog.  She also really likes any boyish sport, especially baseball.  She is ever ready for a tumble in the mud or a fist fight, evidence of her temper.  She’s outgoing and kind, nonetheless.

Phil has red hair and green eyes with freckles.  She’s eleven and often complains eleven is old enough to be treated like a grown-up.

So, how did you like them?  Are they worth writing a story about? (Lol, are the Worth’s worth writing about?  Wait, I only thought that was funny?  Never mind.)  Which one is most like you?  Which one do you think you’d like writing for the best?

IMG_6186Okay, here’s the list of who’s writing so far.  Remember, if you want to write, all you have to do is comment down below.  It’s easy and simple.  Also, you are allowed to take your name off the list until December 6th, three days after the signing up ends.

If you want to be on this list, you must comment or contact me before December 3rd!!!!!!!

Do you understand?  Good, I’m, glad you do.  I hope some more sign up, because even though this is an amazing list, I’m selfish and want more people to join.  If any of you know of some writer friends that might want to join, go ahead and tell them!

Remember.  The more the merrier.IMG_6187

Okay, know for the rules (of course you all have memorized them!)

  1. There is to be no witchcraft.
  2. There is to be no bad words (this is for all ages to read.)
  3. and lastly…I have the right to request you to change some of the content of your part of the story.

See, I only have a few rules.

IMG_6186Next Tuesday, I will be giving a rough idea and some prompts for you guys to look at and think about.  I know what I want this book to be, but it’s y’all’s book as much as mine, so I want you to add your own creative touch.

See ya!  Oh, and remember to comment 😉
